Linen & Bedding Product Info
The bed is the most intimate and nurturing of home environments. It is a place of beginnings, a refuge of solitude and a symbol of shared bliss. Since we spend a third of our lives there, the bed is the footprint of our innermost selves. Building from a blank slate the dedicated staff of Fino Lino strive to personalize the bed scape for each customer. Carefully listening to their needs and thoughtfully choosing the right mix of color, pattern and texture whilst carefully considering the individual maintenance needs of the customer.
Whether serviceable or grand each customers choice is treated in the highest regard. Fino Lino has relationships with finest linen houses in the world that create an extensive collection of quality linens. Specializing in natural fibers, fabrics are exposed to the least amount of chemicals to maximize their wear ability, and in some cases are completely chemical free.
The fiber, quality of yarn, weave, thread count and the finishing all contribute to the quality and comfort of the bedding.
Fino Lino specializes in hand crafted jacquards woven on extra wide looms. Drawing on Old World designs that have been expertly re-colored to suit present home decors.

Alternative Duvets and Pillows
The most desirable alternative to down is from natural sources such as silk. It provides excellent insulation and is extremely breathable, organic and natural. It is also naturally resistant to mildew, mold and, mites providing safety for people with allergies.
The source of silk is from the silk cocoon, perfectly designed by Mother Nature to protect the baby moth from heat and cold. The silk fibre is batted then enclosed in a silk shell making the duvet feel comforting and extremely luxurious. Silk naturally wicks moisture away keeping body temperature even.
There are several types of silk available and are made in different weights to suit your needs.
Tussah Silk is a wild silk that is farmed outside, from the Antheraea paphia moths. They feed on Oak trees which makes the silk yarn stronger and coarser. In our collection this type of silk is usually contained in a cotton cover.
Cultivated Silk where the silk worms of the Bombyx mori moth are raised in captivity, and fed mulberry leaves producing a silk which is finer and softer.
The silk filament is carefully unwoven from the cocoon and may be up 630 meters long. This fine quality of silk is encased in a silk cover with extraordinary drape.
Silk Duvets should be covered with a duvet cover to keep them clean and regular airing will keep them fresh.
